Feds Arrest Alleged Online Pimp In Sacramento
Stephen McKesson, 22, allegedly used online bulletin board Craigslist to market and traffic teen prostitutes in the Sacramento area.
An alleged high-tech pimp has been arrested and accused of trafficking teenage prostitutes, according to authorities.
Stephen McKesson, 22, allegedly used online bulletin board Craigslist to market and traffic teen prostitutes in the Sacramento area, some as young as 13 years old. Federal investigators accuse him of using playing cards with provocative pictures of teenagers to market them to strangers.
Investigators say they caught up with the suspect when a friend of one of the teens recognized her in an online posting and called police.
McKesson raped and beat the teens to force them to obey him, authorities said. Some of the teen girls even gave birth to his children.
He is now facing a laundry list of charges for those allegations, and is being held without bail.
